Re: Really 338wm 1500ft/lbs out to 950 yards?

Just run the numbers on the 338WM on Exbal, comparing 300 grain SMK to 250 grain Hornady BTHP

At 950 yards they both hit with much the same energy at just over 1500ft/lbs
The 250 grain Hornady is doing 1600 fps compared to 1500 fps for the 300 grain SMK.

A big difference is the drop.... In my area I get a drop of 26.25 MOA for the Hornady, compared to 32.75 for the 300 grain SMK.

Hope this helps.
